Released in two-in-one omnibus editions, Inio Asano’s Goodnight Punpun is a manga that’s hard to pigeonhole, if you’ll excuse the pun. Sure, it’s a slice-of-life drama tinged with increasingly black comedy… but not that many slice-of-life stories show their protagonist...

CREDITS: Riichi Ueshiba PUBLISHER: Vertical RELEASE: Out Now PRICE (RRP): £11.99 AGE RATING: 16+ This review was originally published in MyM Magazine. Subscribe here. We know love is blind and all that, but a gal with antisocial tendencies, addictive drool and whose hobby is “scissors” is perhaps not the most obvious girlfriend material.

Noein ANIME REVIEW
RELEASE: Out Now FROM: Anime Limited FORMAT: Blu-ray Collector’s Ed. PRICE (RRP): £49.99 AGE RATING: 15 This review was originally published in MyM Magazine. Subscribe here. Noein is a bold mash-up of opposites, a cute kids’ drama slammed with gusto into an apocalypse epic. There are summer games and child’s-eye nostalgia. There are time-travelling warriors and weird Dali-esque giants. There’s a ferociously complex plot, featuring...

Formed in Osaka in 1981, they began to make waves overseas after their second album Burning Farm got into the hands of an American music producer by chance. The album was released in America in 1985 and things began to move forward very quickly for the band after that. They gained a lot of recognition...
